Beer and Beyond podcast!

Thanks for the great podcast!
This was one of your best.
I loved learning about your beer products—the new items and pairings with snacks. Super cool.
But I especially loved hearing from the crew members in the stores—their favorites and how they’re coping with the challenges of working with the COVID-19 pandemic.
Thank you Trader Joe’s ❤️
